Birdhouse Garden

Good Morning!
Donna Phelan back again.
A little change of pace for me today.  This card showcases an oldie but a goodie Tutti Designs die, Birdhouse Garden, which was released back in the October Release of 2016.
I love this die, because it reminds me of putting my own gardens to bed for the upcoming season.  I adore Fall and all it brings, even if my pretty blooms go dormant for a while!

Once again I cut this beautiful Birdhouse Garden die from White card stock.  I colored it using Copic Markers.  I also added some Pink and White card stock to the back of the birdhouses and the pretty yellow flowers.  This technique gives a bit more oomph to your die cut.  Then I added Versa Mark ink to the entire die cut, coating in clear Embossing Powder and heating.  This always adds such a nice shine to what you are creating AND it makes your die cut look like a pretty embellishment.  If you do this with many layers it becomes an absolute gorgeous chipboard like piece......which as you all know, adds depth and dimension. 

As I only cut one layer, this is still a nice flat card for easy (no extra postage) mailing. 
Gotta love that!
